Microsoft Exchange account - Remote management

Outlook version
Outlook 2019 64-bit
Email Account
Outlook.com (as MS Exchange)
I just changed email id's, deleted the original and added new email to iphone mail app (IOS 14.4) as an "Exchange" account, which I thought was the correct way to add it. My original email (which I still have) was hotmail and I know MS ported to Exchange account some time ago. Outlook (MS365 Personal Subscription) on my laptop is a Microsoft exchange account.

This message came up while adding the email id on the iphone: "Adding an Exchange account will allow the Exchange admin to remotely manage your device. The admin can add/remove restrictions and remotely erase your device" It also listed an Exchange device ID - a very long string of letters and numbers.

What does remote mgmt mean for my personal MS365 email account on IOS devices and Outlook Exchange account on my laptop? Who is the remote Exchange admin? What control do they have over my accounts? I don't have any choice in the matter - MS converted my acct to Exchange a while ago and I've never had any issues, but I didn't realize they had any control over my email! What does this message mean for me? I am not using a work or school account.

Is Exchange the correct way to set up IOS mail app for my outlook email? I think I can choose 'Other' during setup. I don't want to use Outook app, I prefer IOS mail. I still have to update my ipad with the new email id. thanks.

I did not get an answer on this, however, I changed my email on IOS devices to the Outlook Mail app. I had been using the Apple mail app. Apple mail was not picking up my new email id. Outlook mail does and actually works great!! I like it! (I was not unhappy with Apple mail). My Outlook is still exchange - which shows on my laptop, but it did not come up that way on my IOS devices. I would still like to know what the notice means - but I have had Exchange now for years and was not even aware of this until I added the email account to IOS.
